. james? >> chris, good morning. president obama and his national security team approached this day, the president's 52nd birthday, not in a state of celebration, but rather one of apprehension. the u.s. embassy compound in cairo, egypt, is one of nearly two dozen u.s. installations that would normally have been open today, about is now closed. at the u.s. embassy in yemen, heightened security was ready discernible. a senior lawmaker told fox news that terrorist chatter picked up by u.s. signals intelligence exceeds anything witnessed in more than a decade. lisa monaco, the president's counterterrorism advisor, and susan rice, now the president's national security advisor, who led the interagency advice. rice chaired a principals committee meeting yesterday that included the secretaries of state and defense and directors of fbi, cia and nsa. still another participant in that session says it appears plotted at western, not specifically u.s. influence. >> we're taking it seriously, which i think you'd expect us to do. yeah, there's a significant threat stream, and we're reacting. >> t
july, 2008. some communication that the irs and fec are having. this predates president obama's november 2008 election. does that signal to you that at least it doesn't go as high as the white house? he wasn't even president then. >> it may. what we do know is there is communication going on that's not appropriate. it's about a question that should be totally dealt with in the internal re new service. that's what most concerns us. if it is referencing something before then, lois lerner worked at the federal elections commission before the irs. maybe she goes -- she's concerned about this. but the point is there is coordination. at least what appears to be coordination between two federal agencies. >> in terms of the response you want, you want the response back by august 21? >> last week, i had a chance in committee to question acting commissioner dan warfall and i said why don't we have all of learn er's e-mails today? it seems the first thing you would have done as commissioner is send us all her e-mails. who's she been talking to? she took the 5th. if you want to, as the pr
delay for the president's healthcare law forces the obama administration to play defense. >> this is no longer a political debate. this is what we call the law. >> the president claims that this law is working the way it's supposed to. but, clearly it's not. >> john: we'll ask our sunday panel about the political fallout. all right here on "fox news sunday." >> hello again from fox news in washington. more tough questions for the nsa after the "the washington post" reported this week that the agency violated privacy rules. thousands of times since 2008. an internal audit obtained from leaker edward snowden reveals that the nation's most secretive spy agency intercepted phone calls and emails of american citizens repeatedly during that time. and, in some cases did, not report the unauthorized surveillance. now some lawmakers are promising hearings. joining us with reaction is republican senator rand paul of kentucky, a member of the senate homeland security committee and author of government bullies, senator, welcome back to "fox news sunday." good to be with you this morn

altogether. obama administration is going to make sure that you have to include people with preexisting conditions, that guaranteed a gigantic increases. it's going fall off the tracks and crash. >> neil: julie, didn't have to be a rocket scientist or dr. kildare to figure out guaranteeing coverage for preexisting conditions or having your kids on the policy until they are 80 or something like that was going to result in higher premiums. so why this shock, this response? >> first, and foremost, to look at this, premiums have been going up at the slowest rate in the past decade. that is one. two, if you live in new york and california, premiums are set to fall by 50% in new york city next year after obamacare goes into effect. >> neil: you honestly believe that? >> wake up. read the "new york times".

of campaign-style features that president obama has been making across the country. selling his economic plan and calling republicans in congress the obstacles to true progress. >> now, unfortunately for the last year or so, we've had an endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals that shift focus away from what do we need to do to shore up middle class families and create ladders of opportunity for folks to get in the middle class? and as washington heads towards another budget debate, the stakes could not be higher. and that's why i'm traveling around, laying out my ideas for how we have to build the cornerstone of what it means to be middle class. a good job with good wages, a home to call your own, a good education, affordable health care that's there for you when you get sick. a secure retirement even if you're not rich. >> well, a new fox news poll finds the president's message may be falling on deaf ears. an overwhelming majority of voters 71% believe the new speeches are full of old ideas. we have team fox coverage. doug mcelway has more on the jobless nu
